      I was diagnosed with Graves disease hyperthyroidism over a year ago but think I have suffered this condition for many many years.

      I wonder if there is a connection with getting hernias and this condition? One of the symptoms of Graves is weight loss and muscle weakness and atrophy ,both of witch I had.

      There is no known direct relationship between Grave’s disease or other acquired hypothyroidism and hernia formation.

      Patients with hypothyroidism may be constipated. Straining for constipation is a risk factor for developing hernias.
